“Showing Up” by Robert McEwen, H.W., M.

Really all I ask of myself and you is to show up.
Yes, “show up”. 
 
What does that mean?
 
It means to be present in the  space we share, be it phone, or in the  room with me and listen.  And for me to do the same for you.  To be present and listen, witness with no judgement, what I am and who I am and what I am saying, and what I am NOT saying.
 
If we are going express creative living in sharing ideas, feelings, then let us show up and tell the truth.  Be honest with ourselves and just witness each others lives.  This is real experience being intimate and present is relating.  There is freedom in being in that space.  The WE space.
 
So, lets show up.

“Philosopher who advocated taking risks drowns trying to rescue children near St Tropez”

prominent French philosopher, psychoanalyst and newspaper columnist best known for her work on risk-taking has drowned after she swam out to try and save two children who were in trouble in the sea at a beach near Saint-Tropez.

Anne Dufourmantelle was apparently swept away by a strong current at the weekend when she intervened to help the children at Pampelonne beach on the French Riviera.

Attempts to resuscitate her failed after she was recovered.

The children, one of whom was believed to be the ten-year-old son of a friend of Ms Dufourmantelle, were brought by lifeguards to safety and were unharmed.

The red flag, which signals danger and means people should not swim, was flying at the beach at the time of the rescue attempt, according to local media reports which said that strong winds made conditions worsen.

French Culture Minister Françoise Nyssen paid tribute to Ms Dufourmantelle in a tweet, saying the 53-year-old was “a great philosopher, a psychoanalyst, she helped us to live, to think about today’s world.”

Émotions suite au décès d’Anne Dufourmantelle. Grande philosophe, psychanalyste, elle nous aidait à vivre, à penser le monde d’aujourd’hui.

Raphaël Enthoven, another prominent French philosopher, tweeted that he was “saddened and stunned” to learn of the death Ms Dufourmantelle, “who spoke so well of dreams.”

Tristesse et stupeur d’apprendre à l’instant la mort de la philosophe et psychanalyste Anne Dufourmantelle, qui parlait si bien des rêves.

Ms Dufourmantelle was the daughter of an Anglo-Swiss father and a French mother, taught at universities in France and the United States and had lived for several years in Latin America.

She was the author of numerous essays and books in many of which she argued that exposure to threats and risks was an unavoidable and even necessary part of life.

Her first published book was co-written by the late Jacques Derrida, who is seen by many as one of the greatest contemporary philosophers.

One of her best-known works was titled Praise of Risk, which was published in 2011.

In a 2015 interview with Libération newspaper, for which she later wrote columns, she said that “the idea of absolute security – like ‘zero risk’ – is a fantasy.”

In the face of “real danger that must be faced in order to survive, there is a strong incentive for action, dedication, and surpassing oneself,” she said.

“Being alive is a risk. Life is a metamorphosis and it begins with this risk,” she told the left-wing daily.

“It is said: ‘to risk one’s life’, but perhaps one should say ‘to risk life’, (since) being alive is a risk,” Dufourmantelle said..

The interview was carried out at a time when a wave of terror attacks had begun in France and a huge influx of migrants into Europe was under way.

“The terrorist threat has always also been a political weapon to curtail liberties,” she said.

Her funeral is due to be held in Ramatuelle, southern France, on Tuesday.

Biblical Series VIII: The Phenomenology of the Divine


Published on Jul 27, 2017

In the next series of stories, the Biblical patriarch Abram (later: Abraham) enters into a covenant with God. The history of Israel proper begins with these stories. Abram heeds the call to adventure, journeys courageously away from his country and family into the foreign and unknown, encounters the disasters of nature and the tyranny of mankind and maintains his relationship with the God who has sent him forth. He becomes in this manner a light in the world, and a father of nations.

How is this all to be understood? I am attempting in this lecture to determine precisely that. How are we, as modern people, to make sense of the idea of the God who reveals himself to a personality? How can we relate the details of the Abramic stories to our own lives, in the current world? In what frame of reference can these stories be seen to make sense, and to reveal their meaning?

Tickets for the next lecture(s) (and as for the rest of the series, as a whole) are available at http://jordanbpeterson.com/bible-series

Russell Brand presents his version of Advance Seminar

Timothy Ⓥ 

What a privilege it was to edit the words of one of the greatest men of our generation.

Having said that this video is not about Russell Brand at all it is about the message and that message has never been more simple, its LOVE.

I share a lot of the same beliefs with Russell and was inspired to do this project as he says things I feel and in such an open, honest and pure way on media platforms in the public eye.

Trimmed from hours of inspiring, loving and pure truth interviews/talks Russell has been involved in throughout the last year.

I do not own any of the rights to the visual or audio content within this video. It was made as creative project. An expression of newage theories in a somewhat artistic way.

“Do you have Fear of Emptiness?” by Robert McEwen, H.W., M.

Don’t feel bad about that, most of us do.
Fear of being nothing. No thing.  Boy, that scares the holy shit out of the ego.  We think we are a thing, a body.  Body is a process nothing really but function as space.
 
So, I challenge you to share your feelings and thoughts around no-thingness and emptiness.  The East go deep into  emptiness in Zen.  The west, however,  gets stuck in “thingness”.  And things are only “thinks” and exist as space.  
 
Fear of letting go into the unknown?  
Maybe it is threatening to what we identify as, and who we think we are.
Maybe it is like the autistic field (the A Field) in the Totality Field taught in Translation.
 
So, maybe share with a friend of your fear of emptiness.  The nature of Space in life.
All is 99 percent Space, starting with atoms.  It is a play of light that lets us be conscious of appearances of forms.  Our projections appear on our movie screen in life experience we seem to be having. 
 
It’s all in Advance Seminar class being taught now on the internet in GoMeeting.
 
Do not let your fear of emptiness bug you anymore.  
That is the nature of reality.
Quantum Physics goes into the theory of probability and observer and the observed.
 
It’s all in The Prosperos Classes.  Ask me about it.
 
Thanks for listening.
